A genetic evaluation of safflower germplasm collections derived from different geographical regions and countries will provide useful information for sustainable conservation and the utilization of genetic diversity. However, the molecular marker information is limited for evaluation of genetic diversity of safflower germplasm. In this study, we acquired(More)
The numbers of SSR markers and their utilization have not been determined and investigated as extensively in Fagopyrum species as compared to other crop species. The current report presents 136 new SSR markers in Fagopyrum esculentum ssp. esculentum and their application to related species in the genus Fagopyrum. Of the 136 SSRs, 10 polymorphic SSR markers(More)
Transcriptomes from high-throughput sequencing technology provide a good resource for molecular markers. Here, we report the development of polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers from transcript sequences via 454 pyrosequencing for Vicia sativa subsp. nigra (narrow-leaved vetch). In contrast to V. sativa subsp. sativa, the most commonly grown(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which are inexhaustible, highly stable, and simply detectable sequence polymorphisms, can lead to phenotypic variations by affecting protein composition changes. Here, we report development of 25 new cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence or derived cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence markers that have discrete(More)
Italian millet is a commercially important grain crop. Nineteen polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers, developed through construction of an SSR-enriched library from genomic DNA of Italian millet (Setaria italica L., P. Beauv.), were used for assessment of molecular genetic diversity against 40 accessions of S. italica. In total, 85 alleles were(More)
Millets such as proso millet have excellent nutritional properties and could become a basic resource for crop breeding programs and food diversification. In this study, 25 polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed and characterized through construction of an SSR-enriched library from genomic DNA of proso millet (Panicum miliaceum L.). In total, 110(More)
This study was carried out to assess the genetic diversity and to analyze the population genetic structure for a total of 692 mungbean accessions preserved at National Agrobiodiversity Center (NAC) of the Rural Development Administration (RDA), Korea. Mungbean accessions were collected from 27 countries in nine different geographic regions, and were(More)
The vetch (Vicia sativa) is one of the most important annual forage legumes globally due to its multiple uses and high nutritional content. Despite these agronomical benefits, many drawbacks, including cyano-alanine toxin, has reduced the agronomic value of vetch varieties. Here, we used 454 technology to sequence the two V. sativa subspecies (ssp. sativa(More)
The present study reports isolation and characterization of 21 polymorphic microsatellite markers developed from Lycium chinense Mill. These markers produced a total of 86 alleles across 30 L. chinense accessions, with an average of 4.1 alleles per locus. Values for observed heterozygosity and polymorphism information content ranged from 0.03 to 0.81 (mean(More)
This study was conducted to assess the genetic diversity and population structure of 139 Lycium chinense accessions using 18 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. In total, 108 alleles were detected. The number of alleles per marker locus ranged from two to 17, with an average of six. The gene diversity and polymorphism information content value averaged(More)
